A new generation of investors is driving a seismic shift in the asset management industry. As Millennials establish themselves in careers and begin to inherit an estimated $1 trillion from Baby Boomers, they are showing an interest in aligning their portfolios with their world view and are seeking out strategies that combine return potential with an ability to drive positive change.

As a result, we are witnessing unprecedented growth in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategies. As Head of Private Client Group Ned Dane explains, whether they are interested in climate change, housing, gender equality, corporate governance or another issue, Millennials are acutely aware of the footprint they are leaving as investors, and are intent on changing the world for the better.
